dc.description.abstractThis spotlight item is about: Jennifer Nagashima is passionate about saving endangered species. In her research at the Baker Institute, the Ph.D. student is focused on improving assisted reproduction techniques that can help endangered canids (dog-like mammals) like wolves and wild dogs reproduce in captivity. Nagashima is the first student to participate in the Cornell-Smithsonian Joint Graduate Training Program (JGTP), a shared graduate program in which she’s doing half her research here at the Baker Institute and half at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) in Front Royal, Virginia. Through this unique program, Nagashima benefits from the help of two advisors: Alex Travis VMD, Ph.D., of the Baker Institute, and Nucharin Songsasen DVM, Ph.D., of SCBI
